The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
I'm at work right now. I should be working, right? Instead I'm sitting here being upset that I can't practice even though it's raining and hailing. The weather doesn't bother me. When you go hiking in the mountains for over a week, you learn to get over nature's mood swings.
I've known about disc golf for many years but was nervous about putting myself out there because I was afraid I'd be awful. Also, I'm a perfectionist (I can't help that) and I don't like losing...no one…Continue
December 2007 I was at the top of my disc golf career. I placed second in a tournament over great pros and was firing on all cylinders. Then a new relationship happened. I didnt play much the following year until it ended.
Since then, I have been in a driving slump. In early january 2011 I also experienced a putting slump. HERES HOW I FIXED MY SLUMP: I was lowering disc in my back swing. As a result, the disc was pulling around my body and spraying out of my hand. common…Continue

Are you a PDGA amateur who is tired of high entry fees and craptastic plastic payouts? Are you a PDGA pro who competes in age or gender restricted pro divisions who is not competitive in MPO? Do you play tournaments in south-eastern Michigan? If you answered "yes" to two of those questions, keep reading.
In the earliest years of this millenium I used to run tournaments in Michigan. When my brother wanted to start running tournaments in Illinois I cut back to doing nothing…Continue
Watch MMA fighting champ Ben Askren of Team Discraft as he enters the cage to take on veteran Nick Thompson this Sat on MTV-2, 9pm ET. Here's an interview he gave yesterday to USA Today.
So, it's official, I earned an invite to this year's Amateur Championship in MIchigan. Dream come true, prestigious tourney in my home state (I currently live in Alaska). I can fly down, visit with family and friends while playing in a great tourney. But, of course, my parents fly in to Anchorage on June 10th. I've already decided to stay here to visit with my parents on their vacation, but I will admit to thinking about it for a couple of days. I think I'm cursed for big tourneys. I…Continue
This was my first ever pdga event in the States.
It was enjoyable but could have been better in a couple of areas.
As an am senior grandmaster i found it kind of dumb that i had to tee off at 7:30am three days in a row. I never play dg before 11am, my old body doesn't easily allow it. From the 3 Palms it was a1hr run out there .... 6:30 plus a half hour to get up makes it a 6am start to play dg, just plain nuts from my point of view. get the young guys up to play early ...…Continue
The people who worried about me have a report.
An email arrived from the family of the wife yesterday.
All families lived.
I cannot yet know others.
It was long one week.
More than 10,000 people, there is the person who does not understand safety.
In the refuge place, it snows.
I pray for many people being saved as soon as possible.
I thank all of you!
Well, after a long month, the Airport Lakes course is finished. Click below for a link to the course page on the discorlando site for a map, directions and distances.
Airport Lakes Course
just finished my first ice bowl, not to mention my first club event. What a blast and can't wait to the regular season.
Although after 30 holes of going through almost 3 ft of snow it was a challenging day.

Every now and then I substitute my thrice-weekly 3-5 mile run with a bit of speed golf. At Black Mouse DGC, a short but very mountainous track, it's a great workout. My habit there, if time allows, is to play the course twice and aim for a time of less than an hour. Today I finished the first round in 26:26, and the the entire 36 holes in 53:05. If my math is correct, that means that the second 18 holes took 13 seconds longer…Continue
